CHESTER, Va., January 11, 2012 – Carl Zeiss Sports Optics has partnered with Hornady® Manufacturing to combine the success of two great brands and products into an easy-to-use, long-range shooting package. The new CONQUEST Superformance ™ riflescope with Rapid-Z™ reticle is the perfect “no thought, no fuss” solution for hunters seeking an easier way to hit long-distance targets accurately. The CONQUEST Superformance ™ with Rapid-Z™ combines the legendary engineering and optical performance of ZEISS CONQUEST riflescopes and the proven accuracy and dependability of Hornady Superformance™ ammunition into one accurate and easy-to-use package. A shooter just needs to match a select Hornady Superformance™ caliber and bullet weight with one of the six select ZEISS CONQUEST Superformance™ riflescopes. (See table below). Then simply mount and zero the rifle for 200 yards, place the scope on maximum power, and start hitting targets with Hornady Superformance™ ammunition time after time. CONQUEST Superformance™ riflescopes are available with Rapid-Z™ 600 and Rapid-Z™ 800 reticles only. This simple, intuitive concept means less time fussing with gear and calculations and more time hunting and shooting successfully. “We are excited about bringing these two powerful brands together, especially combining such successful and popular products as Rapid-Z™ and Superformance™,” said Robert J. Kaleta, Director of Communications and Technical Operations for Carl Zeiss Sports Optics. “This is an out-of-the-box “slap and go” solution that makes long-distance shooting quick, easy and accurate.”
